You are too kind...however, I should note, though it might give too much away, that even someone knowing how much I post would be an issue vis-a-vis work...though I work at home much of the time, could claim it was during a break (of course!), etc., etc., you get the idea. Just not worth worrying about, and you probably know me well enough by now to know I DO worry alot about nothing, and this is a trivial "something"...see what I mean? Ask Rob or elb for confirmation of my delusional nature if need be.

We are all doing this "on break" :)

I have no guilt, I am highly productive and I'm sure you are too. I work many hours a week including weekends, and the music is a major stress reliever and helps drown out the nonsense around me. Occasional chit-chat is just a piece of that, like water cooler talk ...

Yep; fortunately, I truly love what I get paid to do (throw up now if necessary), and my wife will attest to the fact that I never stop doing "it" and thus my breaks are even more frequent, if that makes any sense...this is how bad it is: while you might be home with a nice glass of red wine, taking a break during the eve when the other family members and pets are doing something so that you have a quiet moment to consider blasting 14 Nov 71, and post a note here about it, and find me, on a late Friday night doing the same, I am actually taking a 10' break from my work...!? Not patting myself on the back--just saying. And, I do know you well enough already to know your work benefits rather than suffers from your time here too, if I may say so. Now, as for JOTS and Dire, well...they used to know how to work, but writing these posts takes virtually all of their energy what with spell checking and all, so frankly, I don't think they could get the little food service gloves on to flip the burger.

Hey Will, I was watching 'Dirty Jobs' w/ Mike Rowe the other day and the job was catching spiders in the desert and I couldn't help thinking of you. It was a real cool segment BTW - the couple catch, milk and save the venom of all sorts of spiders. They also raised the spiders food as they actually kept the spiders - like a giant spider farm.

good god!!!! i thankfully missed that episode. i have a pretty hefty case of arachnophobia for any spiders the size of a quarter and larger. if they get in the house and need to be removed, i generally rely upon the bravery of others to do the dirty work. i cant even imagine having one/many as "pets."

though i did get a few nice macro shots of a very large spider up in vermont that was resting by the porch. when i look back on the shot i cringe, get shivers, and wonder HOW the hell i ever got close enough to take the shot.

Now that is one healthy specimen

I took hundreds of really nice slides on a desert bio field trip way back in the mid 80's - Big Bend, Sonoron etc - I lost all of them in one move or another - oh well.

Wheww...that's a relief; at least we know that with the "micro" condition, your hands didn't have to/couldn't have actually "touched" anything.

Our beloved Prime Ministers real name is...

Pierre La Frommage!!! All that Irish is just a ruse to confuse us mere mortals...

Seriously though, I don't care what you call me (just not late for supper!), Cush is short for my last name and my old nickname since I was a kid. I do respect others right to privacy though. Occasionally use a first initial for some of you I know off the forum...
